This is history in the making, folks! President Barack Obama has become the first-ever president to reveal his personal support for gay marriage rights while still in office. “I’ve just concluded for me personally, it is important for me to affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” President Obama told ABC News on May 9 — just one day after North Carolina opted to ban gay marriage entirely.
Naturally, the internet is all a-Twitter about his admirable support for equal rights. Even our favorite Hollywood celebs could not contain their excitement and had a few things to say to the POTUS.
